Recycle more from your doorstep!

Recycle more from your doorstep!

Our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop with food scrap diversion. We are thrilled to offer residential and commercial clients a new service for hard to recycle materials, Zero Waste Bags, through our recycling partner TerraCycle!

Many common household items are not accepted in local recycling programs. Using our Zero Waste Bags, you can now recycle 24 categories of hard-to-recycle materials right from your doorstep.

How it works

Purchase: We sell the Zero Waste Bags online and deliver them to your house. For our composting subscribers, that’s your next collection day. If you’re not a subscriber we will deliver on the date showed in the online store

Collect: You fill your Zero Waste Bag with one item type per bag, mark the item type, seal it, and place it out front of your home. Only one item type per bag.

Schedule: For composting subscribers, simply leave your sealed bag next to your compost bin on collection day. For those who are not subscribers, login to your account and purchase a ZWB Pickup

Recycle: We consolidate all the collected bags at our warehouse and send them on their way to TerraCycle for recycling!

We’re working with TerraCycle, our recycling partner, to recycle the materials in your Zero Waste Bag. They guarantee that all compliant materials that are collected are recycled. The items are received by their material recovery partners where they are sorted into individual material components. Each material is then recycled into a raw format that can be used to make new products

TerraCycle is committed to verification and transparency, maintaining records and regularly auditing their supply chain to ensure that they can stand behind their recycling guarantee. They strictly control the movement of materials through each part of the recycling process so they can track and confirm where materials were sent and for what purpose. Bureau Veritas —a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification services— annually audits their collection and recycling supply chains, as do many of their partners. Explore how each material is processed

No. Please only put items from one type of waste stream in each Zero Waste Bag. Be sure to mark the check box on the outside that matches the waste you’ve placed inside.

We cannot accept any items that are not included in the 24 accepted waste stream categories. We also cannot accept any loose items placed outside of the Zero Waste Bags or any Zero Waste Bags that are filled in such a way where the bag cannot be closed.

Additionally, each Zero Waste Bag size accepts different and specific waste streams. Please only put accepted items (listed on the bag) in the respective Zero Waste Bag.

If you are unsure or have a specific question, please contact us at service@monster-organics.com. or by calling/texting 703-574-3414.
